An American geriatrician and palliative care specialist, Dr Meier is recognised as a leader in the field, having published more than 200 peer-reviewed papers, several books and more than 29 book chapters.

Dr Meier is the Director of the Center to Advance Palliative care (CAPC), which is dedicated to increasing the number and quality of palliative care programs in the United States. Under her leadership the number of palliative care programs in US hospitals has more than tripled in the last 10 years.

Dr Meier will be speaking on Transforming the Care of Serious Illness through Palliative Care at the public forum, entitled Death Happens! So let’s talk about how we die. 

The free forum, hosted by the Centre for Palliative Care, will debunk commonly held myths about death and dying and provide a safe environment for people to air their concerns, and learn about their options for end-of-life care and how to talk to their family about their wishes.

Registrations are required for the forum, which will be held at Deakin Edge, Federation Square, Melbourne, on Tuesday, February 23.
